Ok, so I have a confession to make. I love American Idol this year... I think the talent is great and the judges are fantastic and entertaining. On tonight's elimination, Pia Toscano was the one to leave which left me more than disappointed.
I don't usually get that "into" tv shows. I prefer movies. But, there's something about American Idol and watching people perform that is just so entertaining (and I think some of the rest of you can agree). I am not usually one to voice my opinions on things, or get bothered by something on a "show". But, with Pia leaving it has left me feeling really disappointed. I have been watching the show many times to see what fantastic ballad she can tackle or how much she is going to sound like some of my favorites, Whitney, Celine and Mariah.
My husband and I always get into little arguments about how he enjoys "male singers" more and I enjoy "female singers". It's about relateability. What can I blast in my car and sing along to. I'd rather sing to a female voice personally. So, where am I going with all of this? My favorite singers are the female stars who can REALLY belt out those notes. I have never on American Idol seen someone who I thought could sing like Mariah Carey, or sound like Celine Dion. I think Pia is that talented.
She may need some guidance in her career and with her talent, (like all of us do) but I think she has great things ahead of her. I write about this mostly for selfish reasons...to let out my disappointment. But also because this is a "beauty" blog... Pia has a beautiful voice and is a beautiful girl. I wanted to share my opinions.
Enjoy three incredible songs...(and tell me she is not fantastic!) I'd give anything to have a voice like this...
Love & God Bless, Lauren
